The Diabetic's Guide To Eating Rice

Replace white rice with brown If White Rice were to be a contestant on “Let’s Get These Blood Sugars Soaring” it would receive a standing ovation. It has a high score on the Glycemic Index - a list that grades foods according to how much they screw up your blood sugar. It’s naturally good at helping people develop diabetes. Each additional servings of white rice a week increases your chance of developing diabetes by 10%.

    DOES CAUSE MEMORY LOSS!!!!!!! I know, it causes me to lose memory.... .short term memory loss. I am now dealing with this and will seem my doctor to see if there is another drug I can take that does not cause this. THE THING IS THAT THE DOCTORS KNOW THAT IT CAN CAUSE MEMORY LOSS, BUT SUBSCRIBE IT ANY WAY. THE MANUFACTURERERS KNOW TOO BUT ARE JUST AFTER THE MONEY.

    Hello, Marlene! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having.
    However, all medications carry the risk of causing side effects, some more serious and problematic than others. In most cases they are transient and will go away, after about a month, once your body gets used to a medication.
    When prescribing something, your doctor has to evaluate whether there is greater risk from giving you the medication, or leaving any given condition untreated. In this case, if you are diabetic, there is far greater risk from letting that continue out of control than there is from any of the medications.
    The FDA lists other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, flatulence, diarrhea and hypoglycemia.
    However, there is nothing about memory loss, nor has anyone else reported this so far.
    Is this the only medication you're on?

    I am experiencing this now. I have talked with my doctor and it is well know that Metformin causes memory loss. The powers that be are just hoping that it won't. Medformin is the only drug that I take. I also googled it and read other peoples experience with this drug. It messes with the neutrons in the brain.
